, including gov. christie, cuomo, and bloomberg. want to praise them for the extraordinary work they have done. sadly we are getting more experience with these big- impact storms along the east coast, in the preparation shows. for it not for the outstanding work of day in their teens, we could have seen more deaths and property damage. they have done extraordinary work, working around the clock. coordination between state and local governments has been outstanding. obviously we are now moving into the recovery phase and a lot of the most severely-affected areas. new jersey, new york have been pounded by this storm. connecticut has taken a big hit. because of the sum -- because of some of the work done ahead of time, we have been able to get over 1000 officials in place. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water and emergency generators to ensure hospitals and law enforcement offices are able to stay up and running as their of their responding. we will continue to push as hard as we can to make sure power is up throughout the region, and obviously this is mostly a local responsib
to work with governor christie todd impacts. a lot of areas as power outages can be the primary issue. will further cannot establish homes. the president added on somerset. as they continue to work this, will do further assessments to determine what's going to prominently divide will be homes damaged or destroyed, not just power outages and will also be looking at recovery costs another assistance that have not been declared yet. >> thank you, mr. chairman. operator, next question. >> good morning. i came in like, so i may be repeating something someone else asked. i want to know about adding additional counties in new york and also an explanation from your side of governor cuomo's request for 100% federal share. what would that be 100% of this congressional action needed for that? >> right now we have the boroughs impacted. again, as they assess damages, candidates can be added on as one of the thing is concerned about was flooding inland. unfortunately that did not seem to be as bad to prepare for. right now the primary focus is certified strong term damages. as assessments continue
about. new jersey governor chris christie lifted a ban on out of state fuel purchases yesterday, that should remove one piece of red tape at least and importantly a large section of line number three of the colonial pipeline which brings jet and auto fuel to the city was restarted around 9:00 p.m. last night, that's a crucial piece because that was causing another chokehold on supplies. still these troubles are likely to persist until a greater percentage of the area's terminals, refineries and pipelines are back in full operation, you guys. yesterday as a 5 million barrel terminal operator in linden told me he was not able to get his marine terminal back in order for another four to six weeks. at the same time he's laboring today with the help of a backup generator to get at least one if not two truck racks open for use by noon, the trucks can resupply their tanks and bring them to gas stations so joe maybe it will come to your neck of the woods within the next week, we hope. >> we got the double whammy because most gas stations don't have power. they have gas. >> that makes yo
, the bipartisan cooperation that he demonstrated with chris christie, trying to make the point that this is when america is at its best. now he's got a better than expected jobs report and he can say america's coming back, home values are rising. we had the most private sector hiring in eight months. all those are elements of the president's argument. of course, mitt romney's argument is going to be is this the best we can do? we can do better. he has already been saying that earlier today, saying the president says this is the best it can be. i say it can't stay this way. there you have the two arguments framed as we go to a final weekend with the polls nationally showing a dead heat and in the swing states a slide advantage for president obama. >> obviously it's all happening, the theater of it is happening in the crucial states. the governor is in wisconsin today. as we can see, the president in ohio. you look at the top of drudge, john, and it's all about the complications of the recovery, the gas lines, the frustration. how much vulnerability does that leave the president even though he may
york? we have not heard from him at all? you see chris christie all the time? you do not see the governor of new york at all. host: we had a few stores and governor cuomo. but we can look for stories in this morning's paper. tell us how motivated you as a democrat are to go out to the polls and misery, and a state that is leaning pretty far to the republican column in the presidential race. is it to the senate race that will pull you out to the polls? caller: it is the president and senator. i really am a democrat die hard. i just cannot see any future with the republicans, what they are putting out there. host: carol from st. louis, thank you. we will go from hphil on our lie for independents, south carolina. good morning. caller: good morning. i want to make a couple of statements about mitt romney. i cannot understand how people trust romney like they do. knowing that he is the kind of person he is, he lies about everything. he lies about every situation. i cannot understand the people who vote republican all the time, how they both republican all the time. they are going
to here pat mccrory, the republican for governor and chris christie. this is his third trip to the state. he has campaigned so often, he says he is thinking of moving here. he has campaigned for the republican ticket. host: i'm sure they would miss the governor dearly if he were to leave new jersey and moved to north carolina. let's go to the phones -- our first caller is calling from asheville, n.c., on our line for independences. caller: rob, i'm surprised you did not mention that asheville is a very liberal city and textiles is not our primary industry. i live across the road from billy graham's compound. you did not bring up the fact that he removed mitt romney and mormon is and as a call from his list and has been controversial here. -- as a cult. for the last two years, republicans have been in control of north carolina, unfortunately. they get into abortion and voter i.d. which was defeated. going back to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not mid romney. host: talk to us. gues
away, whether or not chris christie decides to run for re-election or plot a potential president campaign. i think we'll also see marco rubio make movement in that direction, more republicaning coming off the bench and wanting to make more noise. >> i want to pick up with where you left off with immigration. something the president said to the "des moines register" of the and then on the record, it peeked my interest because he said if he's re-elected immigration reform is going to be the number one priority. that's a big deal. why not run on that in places, especially places like colorado, like florida. why not talk about immigration reform on the campaign trail? >> i think it's a great point. it absolutely is a critical issue, not just to hispanics, but many others. the obama campaign will make the case they've been making that argument pretty vociferously, specifically in florida where you are right now. one thing to think about here, and this goes to the previous question about what the republican party looks like after the election is what kind of congress is president obama
and yesterday governor chris christie, who is certainly a straight talker, had these dire words of advice for his constituents. >> we want everybody to stay off the roads. again, you know, we can't emphasize this enough, don't try to go out there and be hero or act as if there's nothing going on here. something is happening. it's important. and we need to have you stay inside. >> so that's important advice because even if you don't live along the coastline the winds are going to be such that trees are going to come down. if you live in an area that has a lot of trees stay indoors and get down from the upper areas of your home to a lower entire yore room, and even sky scrapers, you know, soledad. you go up 30 floors in elevation, and that increases the winds by one category in hurricane strength. you're going to be feeling it across the high rises of manhattan, not to mention at the lower levels the storm surge is going to be of historic proportions. likely to be greater than irene. high tide across many of the beaches, communities, happening in the next couple of hours. and again tonight
of jersey is sheltering in place as per the request of governor chris christie yesterday who urged his residents not to take any chances. from what we've seen, they've headed that warning. carol? >> that's a good thing. rob marciano reporting live from asbury park, new jersey. i should explain where i am. i'm in washington, d.c., today. below me is h street. a steady rain has been falling but not a heavy rain. the weird thing about this tropical storm, usually it's really warm during hurricanes. it's cold right now. a damp kind of cold. it kind of goes through every layer of your clothing. i mean, i am freezing right now. it's not even that cold really. probably 45 or 50 degrees. because it's wet and it's damp, it feels so much worse. as you can see, there's light traffic on h street. usually that street would be pretty chock full of cars. federal offices are closed today. a lot of people didn't go to work. of course, schools are closed all across the region. so people have really heeded warnings. they've stayed at home. and that is only a good thing. san sandy, of course, is expected
on the campaign trail today after touring the damage from superstorm sandy with new jersey governor chris christie yesterday. you're seeing some footage from that. minutes from now the president will kick off a whirlwind tour of many states today, starting first with wisconsin. 10 electoral votes up for grabs there. enthey will hop over to nevada, a battleground state with six electoral votes. then the president finishes off his events in colorado. he has nine electoral votes. he is looking for in colorado. he then will spend the night in ohio where he campaigns tomorrow. so hitting four states in one day. meanwhile governor romney is focusing on virginia. he has several events in that one state today. virginia also a key battleground state with 1 electoral votes up for grabs. there will be a quiz on all the electoral votes later, right, jon? mention each and everyone. there you go. john roberts is live in virginia with more for us now. hi, john. >> reporter: good morning to you, jenna. tomorrow both president obama and governor romney will be in or around columbus, ohio. a testament to how import
you perspective, it's a tight knit coastal community. popular vacation pot and chris christie's first stop on the tour of the demolished state and cnn international anchor is live for me now in belmar, new jersey. jim, tourism is huge for folks where you are. how will people move forward? tell me what it looks like today. >> reporter: well, you know, the way that this community of belmar is going to move forward, it is a small community. about 6,000 people year around. 60,000 in the summertime. perhaps even more on the weekends. the only way that these people can move forward or the business community can move forward, tourism can move forward is to get the water out of here, brooke. you know, you look at this stream and say the waters will rece recede. no, they won't. the town is something of a bowl. there are two lakes, two natural lakes. they have to pump that water out. before we get off that shot, brooke, you will be interested to know, bruce springsteen used to go jogging down this street where you see the water. >> where we see the kayaker. >> reporter: down to the beach every
before the storm, and many of those were damaged. so, governor chris christie has actually said, hey, for the first time, we can buy gasoline from out of state to try to help this supply situation, but damage done for the most part. we tried to track down a gas station. had to go to 145th street, by the time we got there, we were almost out of gas. lines a half mile to a mile long. here's what it looked and sounded like yesterday in upper manhattan. >> i got to make three trips to this gas station. >> got to fill it up three times. >> just to go home. >> and still might not make it. >> any other gas station with gas? >> no other gas station with gas. >> i'm broke down. i can't get out. no gas. >> so there you go. cars are stranded on the roadways and may very well limit the number of cars that can be coming over this bridge. the brooklyn bridge, this blockade set up because if you have less than three people in your car they turn you around and ship you back to brooklyn. there will be a lot of foot traffic as there was yesterday. just one more thing, soledad, is the gas. and it's tur
, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homeland security committee, i thank my good friend from georgia, we worked together, and i must say that president obama has worked in the last four years with republican members of congress. with senators, with house members on a number of different issues, patent law, a number of issues dealing with energy, a number of issues dealing with building up business opportunities. but the real policy questions that will help america, president romney to be if he's trying to be president, excuse me, is arguing that government
four hours surveying hurricane damage with new jersey's republican governor chris christie. with less than a week to go until the election, the two leaders were an unlikely combination. practically inseparable, comforting victims in shelters and on the storm-ravaged streets. later at a press conference, the president and governor, the gop's convention keynote speaker earlier this year went out of their way to praise each other's leadership. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. >> reporter: for the president, the new jersey trip was also a chance to show his empathetic side as he comforted the owner of a marina destroyed by the storm. >> how long have you had the marina? >> since '96. >> nothing like this never happened? >> never. >> reporter: mitt romney spent his wednesday full-time on the trail in florida trying to balance campaigning and showing sensitivity for the storm victims. >> keep folks in your thoughts and pra
you very much. chris christie is the governor of that state of new jersey. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you guys took a direct hit, and i know you'll probably not know the extent of the damage until daylight and you get to see the areas by ground and by air, but based on the reports you've been getting overnight, what's the state of your state? >> it's a major disaster, matt. we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the raritan bay and newark area. the city of newark is 95% without power due to substation flooding. all that came from the tidal surge that came up from the storm through raritan bay and newark bay, the same thing you see affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little bit later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> yeah. i was watching reports all afternoon and evening, governor, from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do you have a lot of people that you think you're going to have to go
. in new jersey, governor chris christie issued evacuationers for folks along the coast, board walks, and casinos in atlantic city have been empty since yesterday. >>> and here at home, fishery warning people to stay off the roads -- officials are warning people to stay off the roads. >> wet roads and down trees could make it a slippery ride. julie wright joins us next with a check on traffic. . >> reporter: allison you're right, those long and windy roads in route seven were just covered with leaves over the weekend. approaching 10, no one is' getting by at this time. we had activity south on fairland road. that crash has cleared. again to update our on the commute around town, definitely dealing with the wet pavement, we are anticipating the roads to deteriorate as the storm continues closer to us. we already have beach drive shut down, this is typically a common area where we tend to see standing water once the weather and winds pickup. little falls parkway between massachusetts a and river road. that's already shut down, and of course the parkway blocked off between wayne avenue.
jersey governor chris christie is urging the evacuations of all the state's casinos and state barrier islands by this afternoon and he's closing state parks. billboards were also taken down in advance of the expected high winds. >> at this point in time, it will likely make landfall late monday evening bringing accumulated rain, high winds and significant beach erosion. >> evacuations are also underway in new york. authorities are calling for the first mandatory evacuations in that state. residents on fire island have to leave by 2:00 this afternoon. fire island is located off the south shore of long island. there are just a few hundred people living there right now and they're packing up and getting off the island. >> this is a dangerous storm and i think we're going to be ok but if it were to strengthen unexpectedly or change its path, it could do a lot of damage and you could be at risk. >> new york city officials are considering whether to shut down any public transportation as it did during irene. airlines are predicting cancellations and waiving change fees for passengers who wa
